Suspense Novel Set in Douglas County, Florida

A HARD DEATH by Jonathon Hayes is “deliciously wicked and entirely un-put-downable” says bestselling author, Chelsea Cain.

This crime novel is about forensic pathologist Edward Jenner, who survived the horrific ordeal of the Inquisitor serial slayings in New York, but not the political fallout.  With his state medical license suspended, he hopes to repair his shattered life while working as a medical examiner in Douglas County, Florida.  But evil is not confined to big cities alone.

Florida is one state I have never visited and after reading this book, I do not want to go to Douglas County for sure!  Corpses pulled from a sunken car, and more bodies hanging in the Everglades are evidence of an infection in this quiet coastal resort community.  Jenner’s investigation turns up grim traces of a nightmarish conspiracy.  With no one to trust and nowhere to turn, his only hope of survival is to walk away…something Jenner could never do.

These 432 pages will keep you on the edge of your seat from page one.  Available in paperback.
